It’s that time of year when the temperatures dip and the dry air rises. We are susceptible to viral and bacterial infections. Nobody, especially as we near the Christmas holidays, wants to be sick and run down.
Eating healthy is always the best option, but with all the Christmas parties and other holiday functions that demand our time and attention it’s not always easy to stay on schedule with proper food intake. I do have a supply of fresh garlic on hand and chop it into small pieces. I swallow it (without chewing it) with some water. I keep fresh ginger in my fridge and make it as a tea, as well as grate some in my food. It is known for it’s antivral and antifungal, and antiparasidic properties. Oil of Oregano is another option I have when I get a sore throat or feel really congested. Bee pollen and bee propolis are also part of the arsenal I use to combat colds this season.
I discovered a honey ginger drink (golden kiri ginger drink) in an Asian supermarket and decided to give it a try. I have been quite pleased with it. It really clears the sinuses. There are individual packets which makes it convenient to take them with you whether on the road or at work.
Drinking lots of water helps to flush the system quickly and will help in keeping the mucous thin when there is a buildup in the bronchial tubes and lungs.
Looking forward to a healthy Winter Season…
